This story is about the ups and downs of love that is separated by oceans, fame, and how hard they will work to stay together


23. Pancakes


**Two Months Later**

.:~Alyssa’s P.O.V.~:.

“Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa Waaaaaaaaaaaaa.”

I opened my eyes and looked up at the clock beside my bed, 4:30AM. Austin wouldn’t stop crying.

“Niall…” I moaned, “Your turn…”

He just moaned then rolled over.


He still wouldn’t wake up. I thought of an idea to wake him up. I sat up and leaned towards Niall, I whispered in his ear,

“Niall, if you take care of Austin I’ll make you pancakes.”

His head shot up, “I’m up!!! I’ll get Austin. You make pancakes!!”

He jumped out of bed and ran to Austin’s room.


.:~Niall’s P.O.V.~:.

“Niall, if you take care of Austin, I’ll make pancakes.” I heard someone whisper in my ear and my head shot up. It was Alyssa.

“I’m up!!! I’ll get Austin. You make pancakes!!” I cheered and jumped out of bed to go to Austin’s room to get him to quiet down. Alyssa almost never made pancakes… and hers were the best!

I opened up Austin’s door and picked him up out of his crib. I bounced him up and down to try and get him to stop crying,

“Hey buddy. Shhh shhh it’s okay.” I cooed. God, Alyssa’s mommy talk was rubbing off on me. He slowly stopped crying. I sat in the rocking chair and rocked Austin in my arms and sang gently to him,

“Lean on me, when you’re not strong and I’ll be your friend. I’ll help you carry on, for, it won’t be long till I’m gonna need somebody to lean on.”

He fell asleep shortly and I lay him back in his crib.

I walked out of his room quietly and went downstairs and into the kitchen. All of the lights were off and there was no sign of pancakes being made. I sighed and walked back up to our bedroom and when I opened the door, I saw Alyssa passed out on the bed; I went up to her,

“Little lying bitch!” I laughed in a mumble, then lay back on the bed and wrapped her in my arms. I was asleep before I knew it.


When I woke up in the morning, Alyssa was no longer beside me. I looked over at my clock. It was 10:00AM. I got up and went to Austin’s room and he was gone too. I went into my room and threw some sweat pants on over my boxers. I was too lazy to throw a shirt on so I just walked downstairs.

About halfway down, I smelt something… delicious!

“PANCAKES!” I yelled and ran downstairs.

I overheard Alyssa laugh and say, probably to Austin,

“I think daddy is hungry babycakes!”


I opened the door to the kitchen to see Alyssa making pancakes.

“Hungry Nialler?” Alyssa laughed.

“Very. I thought you weren’t going to make me pancakes.” I replied, digging my fork into the big plate she gave me.

“And you thought I was a little lying bitch.” She laughed and kissed me gently.

“You heard that?” I blushed

“I did, but I also heard you laughing.” Then she kissed me again, a nice long passionate one.

“I love you Niall.” She looked me deep in the eyes

“I love you too princess.” I replied, and then looked at the ring on her finger, “We should start planning a wedding soon, at least as long as you still want to.”

She laughed, “Of course I want to Niall! I’ve wanted to since I was 13. But you’re right. We should start planning.” She went and grabbed herself a plate of pancakes and sat down beside me, “Let’s get some basics down first…”

“Haha someone is really eager. Um, okay, what season should it be in?”

“Fall. Early to mid-September to be exact.”

“Okay. Indoors or outdoors?” I asked. We looked at each other and nodded.

“Outdoors.” We said unanimously.

“Bridesmaids and groomsmen?” she asked

“Um… I want, I think probably Liam to be my best man. He’s been there for me through thick and thin. He’s the one who convinced me to propose, so I think he should get the honor.”
“Agreed.” She nodded

“And your maid-of-honor will be…” I drum rolled on the table.

“Ummm…” she thought for a minute, “I think Kennedy. She is my bestest and longest friend and like Liam, is always there for me.”

“Okay. We have those basics down, we just got to ask them if they want to take on the roll.” I said

“Okay… I can’t believe you and I are going to be married.” She laughed, “I’m so lucky to have you.”

“Phe-lease,” I smiled, “I’m the lucky one here. I have amazing friends, a beautiful wife and a handsome baby.”

She laughed again. I love when she laughs. It lights up my world. I love her with all my heart and I will never let her go. It’s good that she’s mine now, because as mad as I was at that Eric guy for cheating on her, I’m not really one to beat up people, but I had promised though she told me it was unnecessary. She got up, cleared our plates and then she picked up Austin and we all went to sit on the couch. She fed him while we watched The Big Bang Theory.

“I love Sheldon. He makes me laugh so hard.” Alyssa said

“Same!” I laughed, “What if little Austin here turns into Sheldon?”

 “Well then I will love him as much as Sheldon’s mother loves him, and take him to that specialist in Houston!”

We both laughed really hard. She put Austin in his bouncy chair and he kept himself occupied while Alyssa and I cuddled on the couch.

We both dozed off but it didn’t last long because Alyssa’s phone beeped,

We jumped up and she looked at the text,

“Oh shoot. Niall, I’m so sorry but I have to head into work for a few hours. I’ll be back at 3.”
“It’s okay love, but I have to leave at 2:45 to head to recording. Could I drop Austin off with you?”

“Sure,” she replied

“Okay, but I may not be home until really late. The guys and I may go out for a drink or two afterwards.”

“Okay, just don’t drive if you are too drunk. Stay at a hotel and just call me to tell me, kay hun?”

“Okay babe.” I replied and I gave her a quick kiss as she ran out the door.



**A Few Hours Later**

.:~Alyssa’s P.O.V.~:.

Niall had just dropped off Austin, so he was playing with Buster, a big old Dalmatian who was really sweet, while I finished up some paperwork.

Finally I could leave work. When I got home, Niall had left me a little note,

“Just wanted to tell you I love you! J

Forever Yours,


I smiled and laughed. Oh Niall, I thought to myself.


I spent most of the day with Austin. The girls had gone shopping up in Manchester for a few days. They invited me, but I didn’t want to leave Niall alone with Austin.

It was about 7:30 and I was about to put Austin to bed when my phone rang,
the caller ID said Unknown number. I picked it up,

“Alyssa? Good. I have the right phone number!” she sounded like my mom, but my mom hasn’t even tried to contact me since I moved out. We had a small misunderstanding, screw that, a big one, but I don’t even remember what it was about.

“Mom? Is-is that you?” I asked

“Yes, and I know we haven’t talked, but your sister, Amber, she was in a car accident earlier. It’s not looking good and I know you have a baby and all but she wants you here… we-we all do.”

I felt tears in the corner of my eyes, my sister Amber was the only person I was still in contact with and now, she could die. I had to get to Toronto,

“I’m on my way mom.”

“Thanks,” she said and I was about to hang up the phone, but I heard her call out, “Wait!”

“Yea mom?”
“I’m really excited to see you baby girl. I’ve really missed you.”
I smiled, “I missed you too mom.”

I hung up the phone, quickly looked up the next flight, quickly packed some stuff for Austin and I and drove off to the airport as fast as I could
